Multiple FixedHeaders on the same page

Multiple FixedHeaders on the same page

Hello,
Thanks for this great package.

I was wondering whether there's a way to use FixedHeader on pages that contain multiple tables, so that the call $("table").dataTable() returns multiple objects?

I was hoping that something like this would work, but it doesn't:
[code]
var tables= $("table").dataTable();
new FixedHeader(tables);
[/code]
or in fact
[code]
var tables = $("table").dataTable();
for (var t in tables) {
new FixedHeader(tables[t]);
}
[/code]
What does work is;
[code]
var table1 = $("#id1").dataTable();
new FixedHeader(table1);
var table2 = $("#id2").dataTable();
new FixedHeader(table2);
[/code]
However the above is not a good solution for me as I'm using DataTables in a Drupal context where the tables on the page do not have id's or unique CSS classes, or the id's aren't known to my code.

Any suggestions?

    Stupid me. This works beautifully:
    [code]
    var tables = $("table").dataTable();
    for (var t = 0; t < tables.length; t++) {
    new FixedHeader(tables[t]);
    }
    [/code]

    However.... the same cannot be said for FixedColums. This does not work:
    [code]
    var tables = $("table").dataTable();
    for (var t = 0; t < tables.length; t++) {
    new FixedColumns(tables[t], { iLeftColumns: 1 });
    }
    [/code]

    Suggestions?

    Slight reduction for your FixedHeader code:

    [code]
    $("table.dataTable").dataTable().each( function () {
    new FixedHeader( this );
    }
    [/code]

    (I've added a class as well so it only picked up DataTables tables).

    FixedColumns however takes a DataTables object in its constructor (not sure why I did that - bit stupid on reflection...):

    [code]
    $("table.dataTable").dataTable().each( function () {
    new FixedHeader( $(this).dataTable() );
    }
    [/code]

    I'm going to spend a bit of time sorting out the plug-ins and make them all 1. sensible, and 2. confirmative, once 1.10 is in beta / released...
